So not a PSB appearance, but a very(!) quick and unexpected PSB mention.

Bill Burr being interviewed by Richard Herring and the conversation got around to talking about areas of London/New York that are considered trendy/trashy.

Was they at their respective houses or in a studio? 🤔🤔🤔

Re: Smithsonian presents: Project Pride feat. PSB

Yeah, was wondering the same. Something pre-recorded I guess, it does start streaming from 1AM UK time. Maybe something like the XFM session tracks...?
